worldMap( ) Query Function

A helper function to produce data compatible with the World Map widget. It takes either ip-addresses or lat/lon as input and buckets points using a geohashing algorithm.


Name Type Required Default Description
ip string No The field containing the ip-address to look up geo-coordinates for.
lat string No A field containing the latitude to use for geohash bucketing.
lon string No A field containing the longitude to use for geohash bucketing
precision number No 4 The precision to use in the calculation of the embedded geohash. Usually 4 is fine for a full globe, 12 is for a small area of zoom.
magnitude Aggregate No count(as=_count) A function used to calculate the magnitude (weight) of each bucket. This value is used to determine the size or opacity of the world map markers.

worldMap has no unnamed parameter.


Plot ip-addresses on the world map. The magnitude is the number of observations in each bucket (the default).


Plot existing geo-coordinates (latitude/longitude) on the world map. The worldmap() function will automatically bucket the locations to reduce the number of points.

worldMap(lat=location.latitude, lon=location.longitude)

Plot ip addresses on the world map and use average latency as magnitude of the points.

worldMap(ip=myIpField, magnitude=avg(latency))
